Guest & host review acclaimed book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine – by Israeli historian Ilan Pappe. This seminal, best-seller precipitated ire within much of the Jewish-Zionist faction for toppling cherished myths. Gone are those heroic foundation myths surrounding Israel's so-called glorious war of independence in 1948! Ilan Pappé removed three “beloved” pillars of Zionist Propaganda: 1. Myth that Jews - in 1948 Palestine – were fighting for their survival,
2. Myth that Palestinians left their homes – voluntarily - in 1948 to invading Zionists
3. Myth that Israelis ever extended their hand in peace
Definitely, history - versus myth - about Israel’s formation is deplorably grim. Definitely, The World has tolerated - from its inception – Israeli atrocities. Guest Dr. Ibrahim Soudy eloquently summarizes Ilan Pappe’s historical corrections. The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine is a must read! Moral Politics salutes especially the scholarship & courage of author Ilan Pappe. The author – who dared this history – left Israel because of threats.
